Thank you all, you lovely people! :).

Well - what a day! I've been on the go since I got to work at 8, and only left at 5pm because I had my counselling session - which was actually fab. The lady was lovely, very sympatico and also said lots of very nice things - but she let me talk and talk (and talk!), with a little tear here and there, about what it's like to struggle with lack of control and lack of mobility - and she was quite clear that there's a way to break the cycle I'm in - so I'm going to go fortnightly for a bit and see how I get on. Will involve some CBD which I know zilch about, but she's got some reading for me. It's going to be an ingteresting journey but I feel like a weight has lifted off my shoulders :).

Talking to her also made me realise I am being a silly twat for avvoiding the SW woe when it worked so well before - so I'm going to do it but not go to group for now (can't afford it on top of the counselling). Plus that will avoid the HiFi demolition! Even if they do have a new chocolate cherry bar...sob.

Oh and a victory on the way home - it is bucketing down with heavy winds, and I thought "Ooh it's treat night following WI this morning, plus that session went well, so let's have hot chips...." FFS. Only I didn't! :classic_eek: I drove straight past the yummy chippy and headed straight home to put my slow cooker back in service with a chicken, pasta and mushroom thing with leeks, quark and seeded mustard. Just had a rye cake with a slice of cheese to tide me over because it won't be ready for a while.

Oh re the slow cooker, it wouldn't work because I'd put heavy frozen stuff directly onto the base (it's all digitally calibrated, according to Crockpot), so this time I'd defrosted the chicken and added the stock before I put the frozen veg in.

However, on the gadget front, I think I've decided to get an Actifry - anyone else got one? The Chubby Cubs swear by theirs and I believe everything they say :D.

I'm glad the counselling went well - I know when I had couselling through occ health (more than a few years ago) I felt like the counsellor barely got a word in edgeways. And I cried at every session - I think it's part of maybe talking about things you would normally keep cooped up.

Very well done of avoiding the chippy. I mean a post weigh in take away is an unofficial slimming world tradition but probably not a good one.

I have an actifry which I was mocked solidly for by my OH as I already had a halo oven (i got rid as didn't have room for both) but I love it and use it all the time. I can't have chips now obviously but sw chips were amazing in it and much better than the halo (which was in itself much better than an ordinary oven) It is also amazing for cooking chicken and sausages and roast veg. When I was doing sw (or something along those lines) it was handy to make even skinless chicken thighs nice especially if you put a low syn bbq sauce on because they caramelise (I take the turning paddle out for this) and good for sausages (with the paddle) because it cooks them so evenly so you don't have one of those issues where part of the sausage is still all pale and unappetising while the otherside is perfectly done (might just be a me issue)

So pleased you got on well at counselling. I had it when I was a teenager and I found it helped, just having someone to open up to and have no judgement back, whether it’s about life in general or more of a specialist counsellor like yours sounds. Brilliant victory too! Way to go!💃🏻😃 x

You breakfast was the same as my lunch minus the ham and cheese. And there was me thinking it was a weird combination. 😁

It's not forever, we've just got a lot on - mind you, it'll be like this for the next two months :).

Good news on the house front, the mortgage (after a slight survey wobble, is now going through fine. Phew!

Fab news.
Any idea when the excitement of moving will happen. I love moving house 6 times I’ve moved so far and planning on moving again this year.

Not sure, all the legals to be done yet - but might get the keys the end of this month or mid Feb - then I'm having the K&B extended and some other work done, so a move in date won't be for a while yet - but hopefully by Easter :).

I've moved loads - something like 25 or 30 times - but I'm over it now, and just want my forever home (getting old lol).

Yay I found you! (With help lol)

Glad counseling went well and you'll be seeing her again.

And well done on avoiding the chips! Not sure I could show such willpower!

Re actifry, we have a breville air fryer. I LOVE it! Chips are amazing, roast potatoes dead easy. Diced or sliced potatoes are fab. Med veg delicious. Halloumi and chorizo (I'm determined to find a way to get this in a meal on plan). It's one of our most used appliances!

Now I've found you I'm looking forward to following :)

Much the same here really - am so pleased that the counsellor helped, and it's going to be an interesting and useful journey for you. Glad they're throwing in CBT too, it's useful to have an 'active' therapy rather than just being a sounding board.

Well done also on driving past the chippy. By keeping going, you saved yourself from having to make an even trickier decision. Chuffed for you.

If I had the storage space in my kitchen for an air fryer, I'd have one. Mother swears by hers, and I like what they do with chips.

This is a rather chip-heavy conversation. I apologise... :rolleyes: 😂

Great news on the mortgage and house front. I told my husband when we moved in to our house he better learn to love it as I was never moving again. (I've only moved twice with him but my mum was a avid house shopper/nomad when I was growing up and we moved a couple of times because she saw somewhere she fancied.)

Yeah I'm dreading it really - although it's another chance to do some life lundry and get rid of crap before I do move.

Morning all, had an ok night's sleep but still feel half asleep! Went over cals last night but it will even out over the week so hopefully should show a loss next Monday.

B - eggs, spinach, ham, a little cheese, all zapped in the work m'wave and very nice it was too :)
L - chicken and mushroom pasta
D - chorizo and cabbage
S - rye cakes and a slice of cheese

So, so far so good. I feel like I've put weight on from the pasta, but there's only half a pack left in the cupboard and then it's on to skinny pasta :). No cals, no bloating - perfect!

I have been meaning to get more skinny pasta etc as obviously it is low carb but lile so many diet things it's pricey. Anywhere you can get deals for buying in bulk?

I'm sure being a little over in caps will be okay as you've got quite a strict deficit.
